Song: The Gardener
Artist: The Tallest Man on Earth
Album: Shallow Grave (2008)
Label: Gravitation
Tabbed by: sleepnwithsound

Notes : This is my first chording, so it is sure to have flaws. 
        It is a very simplistic version of the song, with no Open D, so it will 
        sound off if you try playing along with the song. 
        Capo 4 also works fairly well. 
        Please direct any comments, questions, etc., to my ultimate-guitar.com mailbox. 
        Chords are at the bottom of the page. Thanks!

*The G-G6 progression is optional. It works fine with G-G (you can replace G6s with standard Gs)

Standard Tuning (EBGDAE)

Capo 3

Intro: G C D G C D


G6        G/F#          Em     C7
I sense a runner in the garden
C           D                   G
Although my judgment's known to fail
G6           G/F#           Em     C7
Once built a steamboat in a meadow
C         D                G
Cause I'd forgotten how to sail


C7         Dsus4             G
I know the runner's going to tell you
C7             Dsus4        G
There ain't no cowboy in my hair
C7          Dsus4         G
So now he's buried by the daisies
C7                          Dsus4             G
So I could stay the tallest man in your eyes, babe


G6        G/F#          Em      C7
I sense a spy up in the chimney
C            D             G
From all the evidence I've burned
G6            G/F#           Em        C7
I guess he'll read it in the smoke now
C           D          G
And soon to ashes I'll return


C7         Dsus4           G
I know the spy is going to tell you
C7          Dsus4          G
It's not my flag up in the pole 
C7          Dsus4         G
So now he's buried by the lilies
C7                      Dsus4              G
So I could stay forever more in your eyes, babe


G6         G/F#           Em        C7
I sense a leak inside my phone now
C            D                G
From all the lies that I have told
G6        G/F#             Em     C7
I know he has your private number
C              D                 G
And soon he'll make that vicious call


C7         Dsus4            G
I know the leak is going to tell you
C7             Dsus4         G
There ain't no puppy in your leash
C7           Dsus4         G
So now he'll fertilize the roses
C7                           Dsus4             G    C7 Dsus4
So I could stay the king you see in your eyes, babe
Dsus4         G
In your eyes, babe


C7 Dsus G
C7 Dsus G 
D7 D


G6           G/F#                Em     C7   
So now we're dancing through the garden
C          D             G
And what a garden I have made
G6           G/F#               Em      C7
And now that death will grow my jasmine
C         D            G
I find it soothing I'm afraid


C7           Dsus4       G
Now there is no need for suspicion
C7             Dsus4             G
There ain't no frog kissing your hand
C7         Dsus4        G
I won't be lying when I tell you
C7                       Dsus4            G    C7 Dsus4 
That I'm a gardner I'm a man in your eyes babe 
Dsus4        G    C7 Dsus4
In your eyes babe
Dsus4        G
In your eyes babe

Thanks for this, works great for singing along without needing to change tuning.
